Thoughtcrimes (ex-Dillinger Escape Plan) debut new video, sign with Pure Noise Records
Official press release:
Thoughtcrimes, the Long Island-based hardcore band featuring former Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Billy Rymer, singer Rick Pepa, guitar players Russ Savarese and Brian Sullivan, and bass player Cody Hosza, reissue their widely praised debut EP, Tap Night, on October 8 via Pure Noise Records.
The collection features two previously unreleased tracks: "Wedlock Waltz" and "Misery's A Muse," which arrives today along with a hand-drawn, animated video treatment created by Rymer's brother, Tom, and artist Riley Schmidt.
"My brother Tom Rymer is an incredible artist who has helped us tremendously on numerous occasions," explains Billy Rymer. "His friend Riley Schmidt is another massive talent and artistic genius. The two worked with us tediously on making a conceptual, hand drawn animated video for ‘Misery's A Muse.' They also sparked and executed the concept for the Tap Night cover art."
The six-song EP will be available both digitally as well as on vinyl, with a trio of limited edition variants available.
Thoughtcrimes release their Mike Watts-produced, full-length debut in 2022 via Pure Noise Records.
